Comments: The Evils of Television

We've ended the tyranny of television, but Netflix is killing us. It's like a challenge, to see how fast we can watch a movie and return it in the little red envelope -- but the reward is just another movie, and another, and another. And now they have TV series on DVD, so I can renew my love of "The Andy Griffith Show" while nurturing an addiction to "24."

All this has led to an epiphany -- it's not the television stations that are evil, but the television itself. I can feel it watching me from behind the cabinet doors, surveying my comings and goings with that big square eye.

We watch a lot of DVDs, but I'm totally bored by most TV shows. When I watch TV, I'm always thinking about what more productive things I could be doing.
